Foundry Virtual Tabletop - Version 0.7.9 Update Notes

Release Notes for the Foundry Virtual Tabletop 0.7.9 update version
Welcome to the Foundry Virtual Tabletop update notes for Release version 0.7.9.

I am pleased to release Foundry Virtual Tabletop version 0.7.9, a stable release in the 0.7.x series of updates. The 0.7.9 update focuses on resolving and fixing remaining bugs related to the core themes of the 0.7.x update sequence: Dynamic lighting, canvas and scene rendering, some UI and UX fixes, Dice rolling, and other miscellaneous issues which cropped up since the previous 0.7.8 release. I anticipate this hopefully being the final update in the 0.7.x sequence of updates which will be stable for several months until the development work on version 0.8.x is completed - however if there is an accumulation of material issues which manifest that can be easily resolved with a subsequent update in the 0.7 series, I will certainly do so.

WARNING: Version 0.7.9 is labeled as a stable release, but there is always the possibility of unexpected bugs or module compatibility issues. We do not recommend updating immediately prior to a game session unless you are confident in your own ability to troubleshoot any issues that arise.
